Yes we can! (work in a developing country)

(...) We showed unequivocally that working in a developing nation is no bar to doing excellent science. (...) Our key strategy was to work as a team with an innovative horizontal philosophy that involved people from different areas of research in various countries.

Such multinational collaborations are crucial to the success of science, technology and innovation in developing nations.1
Exactly. Multinational collaborations are indeed required and not only in the context discussed in the article, but in general. Collaborations are, in my opinion, our best approach to the advancement of science.
